Making Maestros - Day Two
The five participants move onto Day 2 of sessions, in which they conduct a small group of NZSO players and each other: Raymond plays cello, Brent plays timpani, Nicholas plays viola, Justus plays clarinet, and Pietari plays violin! We look forward to Day 3 and the sessions with the full NZSO, and Pietari Inkinen starts to identify which repertoire best suits which conductor. This episode also looks at tertiary studies in conducting. Robbie talks to Kenneth Young (New Zealand School of Music), Helen Renaud (Christchurch School of Music) and Karen Grylls (University of Auckland); and two figures associated with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra: Lee Martelli (Education Manager) and Tianyi Lu (participant in Symphony Services International's Conductor Development Programme).
